Wilfred: Season 2 (2012)



Critic Consensus: Wilfred continues to be scaldingly funny with a deft humanistic touch but, like its titular character, it may be getting too coy with its narrative mind games.

Wilfred: Season 2 Photos

Tv Season Info

Ryan's quest to figure out why he (and only he) sees his neighbor's dog Wilfred as a man in a less-than-realistic canine costume carries on in Season 2 of this smart comedy. The show's writing continues to impress with its layered storytelling, which starts off with Ryan (Elijah Wood) making a metaphorical discovery (a reoccuring theme in the series) about Wilfred (Jason Gann). Ryan and Wilfred's feelings toward each other teeter between compassion and hostility as they find themselves in one absurd misadventure after another, including a sabotaged wedding. Dorian Brown, Fiona Gubelmann and Chris Klein are also back as Kristen, Jenna and Drew.

I can't think of another comedy that uses form and style as heavily or effectively as Wilfred so saying the show is cinematic is an understatement. It's Lynchian.

Too much focus on what's really happening with Wilfred and Ryan gets wearing. Fortunately, the show doesn't run this into the ground. Instead, it just accepts the situation and wraps funny and entertaining stories around that.

Elijah Wood is so good, and so expressive, as Ryan, that I do genuinely care about his emotional plight even as it involves his possibly toxic, probably delusional friendship with an Australian guy in a dog suit

Though Season 2 started off great and had some amazing highlights, I'm not sure I can call this a good season of Wilfred.

Likeable but rarely memorable.

True to form, there always seems to be a never-ending goldmine of jokes to stem from Wilfred's inability to speak with other humans.

I wish I could enjoy it, but for me, this dog won't hunt.

Due to its indiscreet mishandling of what's real and what isn't, Wilfred simply asks too much of its audience, requiring the endurance to look past its questionable narrative structure and the shaky delivery of its moral lessons.

Jun 21, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The show's first season didn't really exhaust all the jokes based on a guy in a dog suit doing inappropriate dog things.

Jun 21, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It is an absolutely hilarious comedy that mixes in intense dramatic and suspenseful moments with a great long-running mysterious plot that makes the viewer question every single thing that is happening on screen.
